Do objectives count as player attachments?

Recommended Posts

I recently had a similar question because I was attaching objectives (like an orc prisoner) to Beorn. Beorn cannot have attachments and in the FAQ it seems that once an objective attaches to you, it is treated as an attachment. So as I understand it, I wasn't able to attach objectives (such as the swords from The Three Trials) to Beorn.

So in reference to your question, if the objective is now treated as an attachment, I would assume it is subject to effects.

Here is the FAQ quote thanks to Wandalf the Gizzard from my previous post

Any objective card that attaches to another card is
treated as an attachment in addition to its other card
Any non-objective card that attaches to another card
loses its original card type and gains the attachment
card type.
The “Attach to...” rules text on an attachment is only a
play restriction, and is not taken into account after the
card is already attached.

As you have quoted only non-objective cards (since you are also explicitly mentioning objectives...) lose their previous type.

I'm not too sure it would make a difference even if it wasn't. Every card in the Encounter Deck at the Beginning of the game is an encounter card. Unless a card effect explicitly makes a card count as player card, that card still is an encounter card (I am not aware of any card effect in the game that would do that at the moment). While I am not aware of any card referencing "player attachment" I would suspect it beeing an synominous (and wrongly worded) "player card attachment".

Unless specifically mentioned, players don't get control over encounter cards, that get attached to their character(s).


There are

1) effects that target "all attachments", "one of player x attachments", etc.


2) effects that target "one attachment player x controls"  or all attachment player x controls"


1) Would apply to Encounter-card attachments (and in case of x attachments you could choose the encounter-attachment) while 2) would not.
